Meta's Best Photography TipsVariable ND Filters – When shooting video, your Shutter Speed is determined by the 180° Rule, which states that your Shutter Speed should be set to 2x your Frame Rate (24 fps or 30 fps), as this ensures that the motion blur looks natural. In Moment Pro Camera, your Shutter Speed should be locked at either 1/48th or 1/60th of a Second.

Resolution and Frame Rates


4K – This is the highest quality the phone offers.

24fps – This is for the “Cinematic Look” used in Movies.

30fps – This your for Standard HDTV video frame rate.

48fps – Use this to create smooth slo-mo’s for 24fps film.

60fps – Use this for action shots and to make the video smoother.

120fps Use this for faster action scenes and if you want to edit in slow-mo later

240fps Use this for Super fast action and even slower slo-mo

Most Filmmakers use the 180 rule, which means your shutter speed should be double the speed of your frame rate. If you’re shooting at 30 FPS, set your shutter speed to 1/60th, and if you’re shooting at 60 FPS, set the shutter speed to 1/120th.


Color Profiles – This is an advanced feature and best applied if you are going to edit color in Post Production.

Default – This is the most natural looking real-time color profile.

LOG – This is an even lower contrasted version of a flat color profile.

Flat – This is a low contrast, high dynamic range that provides a solid base for color grading in post.

Moment Lens – If you are using a Moment Lens, select the Lens you have attached. This adds the Lens Type to the Meta Data.


Variable ND Filters (Recommended)


When shooting with a Wide Open Aperture (ƒ/1.5 – ƒ/2.8) your video will often be over exposed. Try using a Variable ND Filter to reduce your exposure. This will dramatically improve your chances at catching your shot correctly. Variable ND filters make it possible to maintain your desired exposure settings, while still reducing the amount of motion blur being produced by a slow shutter speed (1/48th for 24 fps or 1/60th for 30 fps). Variable ND Filters can be helpful for shooting timelapses or very slow motion that requires additional tools to perfect that shot. The Variable ND Filter now controls your Exposure.


Moment Pro Camera Video Presets

Access the Moment app quickly using Siri Shortcuts using your Voice, Widgets or the Shortcuts App. Start up the Moment Pro Camera in any Preset of your choose and access the shortcut using Siri, the Shortcuts App or by adding them to your Widgets panel.

How To Use The Timelapse Mode in Moment Pro Camera – Watch a Video


Capture Mode –> Set to the TimeLapse Icon for TimeLapse.

Moment Pro Camera can be placed in Timelapse Mode in Capture Mode in the Bottom Controls.

Set your Tripod, Dial in your Settings and let Moment Pro Camera do the magic!

Timelapse can be used to create beautiful, smooth clips that capture over a long period of time and play back at an accelerated pace. Shoot a sunset scene or capture the hustle and bustle of an entire day’s downtown traffic in one small finished video.

Set Frame and Interval –> Manually adjust the Capture Interval and Number of Frames in the Control Bar, and the Capture Duration will adjust Accordingly.

Capture Settings –> Capture in a variety of Formats and Resolutions including RAW and HEIF. Shoot in MAX, 4K, 1080p or 720p Resolutions.

Slow Shutter –> This is just like Slow Shutter Mode, but on each frame in your Timelapse Video.

Bracketing –> Capture bracketed exposure shots at each interval to make HDR Timelapses.

Video Export –> Select your Bitrate and Export in 720p, 1080p 4K or MAX.

Frame Export –> Export Timelapses at Individual Frames including full 12.2 MP RAW Photos (4032 x 3024 Pixels).
